** The Literature/SherlockHolmes crossover ''All-Consuming Fire'', as well as multiple Holmesian references, features an appearance by ''Literature/{{The Lost World|1912}}'''s Lord John Roxon, and references to Literature/ProfessorChallenger, Literature/FuManchu, and Creator/KimNewman's Literature/DiogenesClub agent Charles Beauregard. It's also one of several New Adventures to have references to the Franchise/CthulhuMythos.

* IntercontinuityCrossover: ''White Darkness'' has the Doctor meets the Franchise/CthulhuMythos. ''All-Consuming Fire'' sees the Doctor team up with Franchise/SherlockHolmes, again against the Cthulhu Mythos. The Creator/BigFinish adaptation goes one step further, and makes it a crossover with their own ''Sherlock Holmes'' series starring Nick Briggs, which is otherwise completely separate.

From 1994 onwards, the New Adventures were accompanied by a sister range of novels entitled "[[Literature/DoctorWhoMissingAdventures The Missing Adventures]]", which adopted similar principles to the New Adventures: longer, usually DarkerAndEdgier novels aimed at more adult audiences. This series included Doctors One to Six, with each monthly novel starring a different Doctor and companion(s). The first of these, ''Goth Opera'', was a direct sequel / prequel (let's just say [[TimeyWimeyBall "timey-wimey"]] and leave it at that, yeah?) to ''Blood Harvest'', a New Adventure published the same month. One of the later ones actually featured the Seventh Doctor and his companions appearing (both of these novels, curiously enough, starred the Fifth Doctor), but they were for the most part stand-alone, although certain characters and concepts naturally mixed together.

The series was followed by the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures, which took the principles started here and just went ''ballistic'' applying them to the relative blank-slate that was the Eighth Doctor.

* DisappearedDad: Benny Summerfield's father, who went Missing in Action under circumstances that resulted in him being branded a coward and traitor. The truth of his disappearance was ultimately revealed in the shamelessly-titled ''Return of the Living Dad''.

* ForeignCussWord: Some time after the series stopped using real swear-words, David A. [=McIntee=] got away with having a character in ''First Frontier'' say something ''very impolite'' in Russian. (The same character in the same book also says something slightly less impolite in [[PardonMyKlingon Klingon]].)

* HollywoodVoodoo: ''White Darkness'' uses spelling as a distinguishing feature: American soldiers who don't know what they're talking about refer to "voodoo" and "zombies", native Haitans and the Doctor talk of "vodoun" and "zombi". Mind you, despite the author [[ShowTheirWork Showing His Work]] there's still an evil voudon priest who actually worships the [[EldritchAbomination Great Old Ones]]...

* {{Oxbridge}}: ''The Dimension Riders'' by Daniel Blythe is set in the fictional St Matthew's College, Oxford. The college president is a retired Time Lord. Presumably, the author (an alumnus of St John's, Oxford) wanted to balance out "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]".

The [[BigFinishDoctorWho Big Finish]] adaptation goes further on the Holmes front, by making it an explicit crossover with their own ''Sherlock Holmes'' series, starring Nicholas Briggs as Holmes.

** Another author who does it a lot is [=David A. McIntee=]. The villains in ''White Darkness'' are Film/HammerHorror stalwarts Creator/PeterCushing and Ingrid Pitt. The ultimate villain in ''First Frontier'' is Basil Rathbone.
** Franchise/SherlockHolmes, in the IntercontinuityCrossover ''All-Consuming Fire'' is also Basil Rathbone, at least on the front cover. On the cover of ''Happy Endings'' he isn't (reportedly the cover artist was explicitly instructed not to, possibly because the novel also features the villain from ''First Frontier''), but Watson is Nigel Bruce.
